Sydney Uni Sport and Fitness (SUSF) is a dynamic organisation providing sporting, recreation and fitness services to the University and general community.
The Sydney University Cricket Club (SUCC) has a rich tradition within the sporting landscape at the University. With 155 years of history, SUCC is one of the oldest sporting clubs at the university and one of the oldest cricket clubs in Australia. SUCC is one of the most successful Premier Cricket clubs in Australia with 4 Club Championships, 6 First Grade Premierships, 3 First Grade Limited Overs Premierships in the past 2 decades. In 2019-20 SUCC won the First Grade Limited Overs, 3rd Grade and 4th Grade Premierships, and finished 3rd in both the Spirit of Cricket and the Club Championships after winning both awards in 2018-19.
The Club seeks a dynamic individual to undertake the role of Senior Assistant Coach to further enhance the development of an environment for players to reach their potential on- and off-the-field. The Senior Assistant Coach is responsible for contributing towards a high-performance coaching program that will drive team success across all grades in the NSW Premier Cricket competition whilst developing individual squad members to reach their cricketing potentials. There is also a particular focus on the PG’s u21 Team where this person will be expected to lead this group throughout their series (approximately 5-6 Sundays) as well as contributing to the running of training on a minimum of 1 night per week (approximately 4.30pm-7pm on either Tuesday or Thursday), but ideally 3 nights per fortnight.
